A fascinating investigation into a little-known yet crucial aspect of one of the most important events in 19th-century history, this account demonstrates how Britain aided and abetted the Confederacy. When John Wilkes Booth was shot 12 days after killing Abraham Lincoln, a money order for $184,000 from the Montreal Branch of the Ontario Bank was found in his coat pocket. Six months earlier, Wilkes Booth had made a heretofore unexplained visit to Montreal, staying at the St. Lawrence Hall Hoteluthe headquarters of the Confederate Secret Service in the officially neutral British province of Canada. Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, this record provides new information about Great BritainAEs and CanadaAEs roles in LincolnAEs assassination plot.
